The County Fair

It just wouldn't be summer without the county fair.  Complete with that wonderful ferris wheel, 
 and colorful games (early in the day, before the crowds of course).
But when everyone else is watching the demolition derby and competing in the longest pigtail contest (not actually pig's tails, but girl's pig tails!), I like to sneak downstairs and see what all of the wonderful women (and men!) have been working on this past year. The quilts, paintings and crafts are always so awesome.

Especially this hand made, blue ribbon wearing, end table set made by a 12 year old.  Yep, a twelve year old.  Applause, please.

I don't know why, but I get such a kick out of visiting the chickens.  Maybe because we can get a good close look at them.  I mean, when else do we get a chance to get so close to these amazing, colorful creatures?  Especially this little guy (girl?).  Pink!  Who knew?

This one was awesome but I think he looked a little angry...probably doesn't like getting his picture taken.
 I couldn't resist him, I loved his Fall-like.
By this time people were beginning to look at me a little strange, wondering why I'm taking so many photos of chickens, I'm sure.  I would have too if I were them.  Because believe me, I took more than what you see here!

 Aww, don't you just want to take him home?? it!
